What's TBone Drinking?

Scotch has been in short supply this year.  Call it sympathy sobriety.  But I picked up a bottle of Auchentoshan recently.  Yah, it's a repeat but a 5 shot review said it was worthy of revisiting.  I compared it to Cardhu in my previous review and I think that still holds up.  Very bold and then soothing.  A little more peat than I remembered but a very good single malt.  Today, I wouldn't give it 5 shots.  It's a strong 4 though.  I wonder if my absence from the world of scotch has changed my appreciation of this liquid mental health pack.  Or maybe different bottles have different subtleties.  I know I've had wildly different experiences with other brands over the years.

In any case, I'm enjoying this bottle.  I'm not demolishing it, just enjoying it.  It's a different approach to be sure.  I'm happy to be someplace where scotch is a luxury and not a necessity.  This bottle actually sat, unopened, for over a week in my house.  The times they are a changin.
